... deserves the chance to recover.

Since 2017 we have seen a steep decline (76%) in the number of prescription opioids being distributed in states like Florida and have experienced similar trends around the nation.

Tragically, while prescription opioid use has declined, America is now experiencing an alarming rise in the utilization of the synthetic opioid, fentanyl.

Fentanyl can be thousands of times more powerful than typical pharmaceutical opioids in its raw form. Widespread availability and its low cost make fentanyl a popular option for cartels and counterfeit pill producers. The pervasive use of fentanyl in common street drugs and the shadow pill market has created a public health emergency.

Many Americans simply seeking pain relief, or the escape from emotional and mental trauma are now faced with the reality that just one dose of tainted drugs could lead to death. America’s youth and vulnerable populations are now overdosing at the highest rate in US history and leaders must act now to combat the effects of this crisis.
